Description

Kelp us find all the creatures at the Dove during our new fun Experiment Evening!

Join us at the Dove Marine Laboratory for the very first of our brand new Experiment Evening's where you can delve into the world of white lab coats and microscopes to learn more about what creatures live amongst the kelp.

Experiment Evening No. 1: "Kelp Creature Hunt"

Ever wondered what lives in the kelp which will only poke it's fronds out and wave to you on the very lowest of tides? Over the past year, kelp from different sites in the north east have been collected and frozen and now we need your help to learn which species are lurking within them. Become a lab scientist for the evening and learn about which animals are living in the kelp first hand in an evening of cheesy science and lab coats.
